Re: Staph Down There while pregnant??

Yes, it is contagious, but it only causes illness under certain conditions and it seems like your immune system is keeping it at bay. Staph is all over, and can cause a serious infection if introduced into the wrong place at the wrong time. I wouldn't worry about showering with your little one, but that's me...other's might disagree. I would talk to your doc about the specifics and see if there is anything you can take to reduce/eliminate the bacteria. I wouldn't want to be pregnant with staph in the vag....simply because if your resistance is reduced for some reason, it *may* cause problems. Your OB may tell you not to worry about it when you ask??
